Cas Blomberg reading the rune stone at Botkyrka Kyrka, in Botkyrka, Sweden

I could tell you about my past. About my time as a police officer, or working for a greeting card company. I could tell you about the years I spent working for the newspaper. Or about how this southerner packed up everything and moved to Sweden. But that’s all in the past, and the past–well, the past can’t be changed until a working time machine pops up. Right here, right now, that’s what matters. Isn’t it?

This moment.

I won’t waste your time any more. I’m a writer.

Characters live in my head. Sometimes they fight, sometimes they scream, sometimes they laugh and sometimes they weep. They all have a story. My job is to write down those stories. Because they knew you’d be coming . . . and they want you to hear their voices, feel their hope, mourn their loss, fight their struggles with them and encourage them.

Click on the Books page to find details about my published works and read about what I’m working on at the moment.

On the blog page you’ll find a slew of posts about life, culture, dreams, rants, and encouragement. I hope you’ll find something you like.

If you’re interested in a sample of my writing, check out Jakob’s Journal. I try to post new entries weekly.

Thanks for stopping by. Pull up a chair, grab a coffee and enjoy.

Thoughts on Terry Pratchett

I don’t normally do this, sit down and write without a purpose in mind. But today, I felt like I needed to. Last week, the world lost a funny, witty, talented, courageous, and all-around amazing author, and though I never met Terry Pratchett personally, I’m going to go ahead and assume, based on what I’ve … Continue reading

What my search for quotable lines taught me

My inner critic hates me. I know you’re all saying she’s supposed to be critical, but I think you underestimate her. She really hates me. Or maybe you know the feeling. Maybe your inner critic is just as vicious. To combat the critical voice from hell that lives inside me, I try to tell myself … Continue reading

They say a picture is worth a thousand words . . .

I say a picture is worth a million words, especially if it falls under one of these categories: Spontaneous life. In-the-moment happiness, goofiness, and all-around surprise. Nothing beats these photographs. They are so much better than the other ones. You know which ones I’m talking about. Those where we pose our kids like wooden dolls … Continue reading

A new job, a new city – well, sort of.

I’ve always believed 2015 was going to be a great year. Based on what’s happening so far, I need to listen to my premonitions more often. First, and probably the most important news, my husband was recruited for a new job! For him, it’s a mixed bag of feelings. He’s sad to leave his employees at … Continue reading

What’s your book nerd score?

The other day I ran across a little book nerd quiz over at Barnes & Noble’s site. The quiz, entitled What’s your book nerd score?, was so good, I thought I’d answer the questions to see if I qualified as a book nerd. I read a lot, but not as much as some people, so I wasn’t … Continue reading

Weekly Poetry Reading – Week Six

Week six has been fun. If you’ll recall, each day during week five, I read a poem about sleep, which in some cases meant death. Since that was depressing, I promised to look for something a little lighter this week and my son helped me pick the theme: Fish! You’ll notice I also included a … Continue reading

Rekindle your friendship with quiet in three easy steps

I have no idea how I function some days. Every second hundreds of tweets flash by and dozens of Facebook posts pop up. My email is flooded with messages, spam, promotions I don’t remember signing up for, status updates for websites I haven’t visited in over two years, Google+ updates, Goodreads updates, library updates, literary magazines … Continue reading
